Spring Break Ideas for Kids: 5 Must-Visit Beaches

Take the guesswork out of planning family-friendly spring break vacations by putting these warm-weather destinations at the very top of your list.

1. Destin-Fort Walton Beach, Florida

When it comes to family-friendly Florida destinations, Disney isn’t the only place that you should be considering. Destin-Fort Walton Beach features white sand beaches and tons of kid-centered resorts and activities, plus plenty of activities that adults enjoy too.

Typical cost for a family of four for one week: About $3,000.

Don’t miss: The dolphins and sharks at Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park on Oskaloosa Island.

2. Monterey, California

You’ve got your pick of beaches in Monterey, and each of them offer something unique for families. Head to Windows on the Bay Beach where you can run around and hit the skate park, or get out on the water and scuba dive or kayak at McAbee Beach. You’ll find lots of great food options in Monterey, and you’ve got a good chance of spotting some seals, too.

Typical cost for a family of four for one week: About $2,500.

Don’t miss: The famous Dennis the Menace playground, located at El Estero Park.

3. Jekyll Island, Georgia

Typical cost for a family of four for one week: About $2,500.

Don’t miss: The hidden rope swing, located a short hike away from the west side of the St. Andrews Beach parking lot.

4. Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Myrtle Beach boasts an impressive 60 miles of beautiful sandy beaches for your family to enjoy.

Don’t miss: A day of fun at the Family Kingdom Amusement Park.

5. Sanibel Island, Florida

We’re heading back to Florida, this time to a low-key beachy gem located just off of Fort Myers. There’s a lot less hustle and bustle to be found here then at many other Florida spring break spots, and no shortage of fun things to do—including dolphin watching, shell hunting, and guided explorations through the area’s mangrove swamps.

Typical cost for a family of four for one week: About $5,000.  

Don’t miss: The chance to interact with rescued wildlife at the Crow Clinic Animal Rehab.
